Here's my two entries - https://twitter.com/NjimNjimNjim/status/846928821643333633 and https://twitter.com/NijmNjimNijm/status/846934258727956480 - I don't know how to embed them, available in 4K to anyone who wants them.

That feeling when you spend a couple hours waiting for the perfect sun location, windmill blades, and cherry blossoms floating in the air in high-end mode at 4K ultra... and a low-end optimized mode low-res brown tree, puke sky, and the back of someone's head is chosen for our loading screens. This has been a great April Fools event.

Its just some transparent attempt to attempt to get more customers by getting us to do their Facebook advertising for them.  No thanks.  I don't use Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and don't intend to start... so hopefully they don't make it mandatory for participation in events.

I've seen way better pics submitted than the ones that were chosen. Did the Devs/Moderators even look at all of them?

I liked galwerk's submission, but the other three are pretty underwhelming compared to some of the other screenshots I've seen floating around.

@CM_Aethon 

Is there a way to adjust what screenshots I personally see when the patch comes through that puts the winners up? Like what file folder would that be in? I want to use the ones I liked instead.

I'm also wondering now after the patch notes, if we will continue to show the new icon that cant be removed on the screenshots (more advertising). I am hoping, they will add a option to remove the watermark completely in the future, if desired. I mentioned the new watermark on screenshots as well as reminding of this blossom events rng and lack of care, hoping there could be some responds, If you, and the rest in here, is interested in expressing your opinions on the watermarks on screenshots.  http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/137798-patch-notes-april-5th-2017/&do=findComment&comment=1908423

Im actually sorta disappointed as well. I'm less upset that I lost, and more upset that I know people like me took hours to find the perfect angles and took time and effort for their screen shots. Just to see some auto run horse thing and some others that look like random choices. There were loads of excellent pictures taken, and many I would have liked to see over these :/ Anyways, my upload if anyone wants to see it issss.... https://i.imgur.com/ZHBUksY.jpg

Every time I see this sorry excuse of a loading screen, I gotta think of your post. Playing on a high-end monitor, I can only share your sentiment all too well. This contest entry is terrible, absolutely terrible and done in a resolution unworthy to be a loading screen. I guess the winners were decided by RNG - how very befitting.

Sorry that your entry didn't make it.
